    hi guys can anyone tell me which audi's and vw's had 312mm brakes fitted to the front as im going to look for some caliper carriers, i believe the calipers fit straight on and all i need is the 312mm carriers and some discs and pads to fit my a4.
    fancy something a little better braking wise and looks slightly bigger through the wheels!!!

    Just removed the 312mm set up calipers and discs due to an upgrade to 356mm discs and 8 pot calipers on mine which is a A4 3.0 V6 but there also fitted to the 190bhp 1.8T A4's
    Failing that the 312mm are also fitted to al these in the Audi/VW range:
    A6 C5 2.5 V6 TDI
    A6 C5 2.4 V6 Petrol
    A6 C5 3.0 V6 Petrol
    TT's 8N3/8N9
    TT 2.0 TFSi
    VW Beetle RSi 3.2 V6
    VW Bora 2.3 V6 & 2.8 V6
    VW Eos 2.0 FSI &2.0TDI
    VW MK4 Golf 2.3 V5 & 2.8 V6
    VW MK5 Golf 2.0TDI & GTi 2.0T
    VW MK6 Golf 2.0TSi & 2.0TDi
    VW Passat MK6 1.9TDi & 2.3 V5 & 2.8 V6
    VW Passat MK7 1.9TDi & 2.0FSi & 2.0TDi

    Also fitted to a whole load of Seat's too

    Someone will doubtless prove me wrong, but I think all the B6 quattro's have them.

    Not sure about "all quattro's", but I'm pretty certain that my 2.5 V6 TDI quattro had 312mm up front...

    Mine does for sure, it's impossible to say anything 'for certain' about Audi spec levels due to their untold variations.

    According to my information the b6 quattro range has the same range of front disc size as the FWD 288mm, 312mm & 320mm:
